“Well if she didn’t want to get hit, then she shouldn’t have started a fight.”
It makes sense to me. After all, he’s a man. You can’t expect a man to control himself. That’s asking too much.
Men are lions. Men are alligators. Men are dragons.
You cannot expect a wild beast to control itself. So why are you asking men to do the same?
All is fair when you’re talking about a fight. No rules. It’s just open war fair. If she didn’t want a fight, then she shouldn’t have started one.
I used to identify myself as a maleist. That is, I believed that the rights of men were being whittled away by American women. I believed that we were raising a generation of men to be pussies. We were stamping out natural male instincts in an attempt to keep them subdued. We were telling American men that they should be ashamed of their sex and instincts.
I’m sure Fight Club had something to do with this.
I don’t identify as a maleist anymore. I find myself thinking these thoughts from time to time. I realize that they are misguided. But, they’re still lingering.
I don’t consider myself a misogynist… but….
Here’s a link to an article that I wrote for Our Muddy Boots. It’s part of the “No Spank Challenge” hosted by Amy Bryant, of Parenting Beyond Punishment. This is something that I believe in entirely.
Kids are people who are most in need our protection and trust. Why spanking is still okay is way beyond me.
